‘Set your House in Order’: Delhi Govt Raps Kejriwal Govt on Worsening Oxygen Crisis
April 27, 20210
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s entire system has failed as black marketing of oxygen cylinders and crucial medicines for treating COVID-19 patients is going on. A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli observed it was not the time to become vultures.
“Are you aware of black marketing. Is it a good human gesture?” the bench said to oxygen refillers. The bench further said this is a mess that the state government has been unable to resolve.
“Our confidence in you is shaken. Set your house in order. If you cannot manage, tell us. We will ask the Central government to take over,” the court said.
The court also rapped the Arvind Kejriwal government for issuing impractical orders. “Don’t be unreasonable. You can’t win this war by issuing (such directions) sitting in your office, you are only compounding your problems”. “You’re living in a different world, out of sync on how hospitals are dealing with it. Why do you pass these orders,” the judges court said while clarifying it has not made any request for creating COVID-19 facilities for its judges, staff and their families in a five star hotel.
